Our hearts ache. Words do not suffice.
There is no more important truth today that must be vocalized – Black Lives Matter. Neither this truth, nor this fight, are new. We stand in solidarity and in action with the communities and people of color affected by 400 years of racism, colonization and the genocide of indigenous peoples. The work is urgent – we must rebuild our country so black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities can live safely and thrive.
As a statewide advocacy organization, Californians for the Arts will address the inequities that have led to this chronic state of fear, hate and oppression. We will work to ensure that resources are directed to actions that undo years of economic, social, and cultural disparity in our state and in our country.
Our advocacy work is structured around two primary concepts.
We will continue to develop ways to use our voice, platform and resources to fight injustice.
The Arts Council of Placer County’s Board of Trustees and staff will soon be unveiling a plan of additional support and grants opportunities for artists and arts organizations affected by COVID-19.
Funding from Placer County, the California Arts Council, fundraising efforts, and individual contributions will be utilized in this support effort.
Look for announcements and application details later in June.
